Chiropractic is a health profession specialising in the diagnosis, cure and prevention of mechanical and neurological disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the affects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. (Chiropractic Association of South Africa)

Chiropractic corrects injuries and allows for natural healing:

When injuries to your spine occur, your bodies’ natural response is to protect these areas and prevent further injury. This is done by activating muscles to spasm and activating protective patterns (Chiropractic Subluxation) around the injury causing initial back and or neck pain. It also inhibits the functions that rely upon the injured area: The same way your hand becomes weak if you injure your elbow.

The muscle spasm and protective patterns limit motion of the spine segments.

It is important for these patterns to be normalised because some of the spinal tissues such as Interverebral Discs and Joint Cartilage rely upon perfusion from surrounding tissues for oxygen and nutrients as well as waste disposal. The movement of these segments is the pump for perfusion.

Normal movement prevents degeneration.

Your body and brain also require constant feedback from one another about your position and environment. Your body needs to know the position of your shoulder and elbow first before moving your hand. The same is true of your spine.

Your brain requires constant feedback from moving spinal segments to use them effectively and keep them healthy.

Chiropractors correct, normalize and maintain movement and movement patterns by stimulating the nerves that the brain receives information from. This is done with safe specific Chiropractic Manipulations.

Chiropractic Manipulations stimulate the nerve receptors, send information to the brain and correct and restore normal movement and nerve function and allow the injured tissues to heal naturally!

Nerves to and from the rest of your body and organ systems can be irritated by dysfunctional patterns as they enter and exit the spine as well. Therefore chiropractic cure can also improve health conditions as irritation of the nerves related to the various body systems is reduced.
